He also claims that Ijoba Danku, who is close friends with Kogbagidi, is now his manager. He claims Danku was key in settling his issue with Kogbagidi.

He claims Danku makes his life easier by not asking him to dress better than he normally does, before he gets to meet stars. He claims that money is the only way to dress well, and he doesn't have the money.
